Aldo L.

"This means a lot more to me than you may realize."

Aldo has been wanting to be in the medical field for a very long time but had always worried that he would not be able to afford it. “I am working hard to maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA to further finance my career,” he said. “I am majoring in Nursing and will apply to the CEP Nursing Program to receive my Associate’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. ”

Growing up in poverty, watching his family not getting the care they need, changed Aldo on a personal level. He’s an extremely empathetic person and actively working in the medical field is his greatest return to the world. “As soon as it was legal to do so, I immediately obtained a job to save up for college,” he said. “I can not thank you guys enough. It means a lot more to me than you may realize.”
